Burning rage, a symbol of the burning passions that give heat but consume

Gasoline straight down the throat,
panther tongue,
eye of the storm,
In the spreading night,
that bursts
and pants fading out
like you,
just like you,
after the flaying of a passion
Only to aim even higher.

Furnace heat.
Warbling lead
delirious mercury,
In the whispering morning,
glides like a snake
and falls asleep
Between sheets and the dreams congealed there.

With two stars on the hips,
In the vast darkness,
every beat of my heart
terrifies and shakes
the entire Universe.

How about you?
Are you still waiting for those who will know how to wake you up?
Do you really sleep and live
such a bitter heartbreak?

Maybe just a sketched,
absolute silence
will wake you up.

A brief note on the symbolism of fire

Fire has always been a symbol deeply intertwined with human history and culture. In various civilizations worldwide, fire holds significant symbolism, often representing heat, light, passion, and transformation. In several cultures, fire is revered as a divine element, embodying creation and destruction.

In ancient Greek mythology, fire was a gift stolen from the gods by Prometheus and given to humanity; it symbolized knowledge and progress. In Hinduism, fire is a sacred ritual to communicate with the divine and purify the soul. Similarly, in Native American cultures, fire represents the sun’s power and is used in ceremonies to connect with the spiritual realm.

The Aztecs considered fire an essential element in their religious ceremonies, as it symbolized the sun and its life-giving properties. In Chinese culture, fire represents prosperity, passion, and vitality, and it is often used in traditional festivals such as the Lantern Festival and Chinese New Year celebrations.

Throughout history, fire has been used for practical purposes such as cooking and providing heat and protection. Its symbolic meaning, however, transcends its physical properties, with various interpretations found in literature, art, and religious practices worldwide. The multifaceted nature of fire as a symbol continues to intrigue and inspire people worldwide.
